My checklist is going well for the weekend. I wished for rain and yesterday, you would not believe how much rain fell on Miami. I stayed inside most of the day cleaning out the closet. I didn't realize how many boxes of pictures and invitations I had stored up, not yet in albums. My album project is going to be a little more extensive than originally thought. My advice to anyone in the same situation is to start with the present and work backwards. I sell these cute photo albums with rings so you can do them completely out of order.
I saw Julie and Julia last night and loved it. There is so much chatter about her writing a blog in the movie, my friends were totally laughing because I really don't think most of them understand why I write in a blog to begin with, oh well- if you don't get it, you won't get it! Right? Anyway, both Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are fantastic in the film and I completely recommend seeing it.
Backing up to Friday, I went to visit good friends Tina and Dan to meet their newborn twins. How exciting. Ricky, Amy and I and a few others were lucky enough to be hosted by two people who have created not only the perfect home for entertaining, but now with the arrival of these two adorable boys, a perfect family. Tina is quite the decorator and I was DYING to check out her boy's nursery. It did not disappoint.
Dinner was delicious Mexican with quesadilla, taquitos and fresh guacamole made with a mortar and pestle just like at Rosa Mexicano. So yummy.
Now I am off to Scotty's Landing to welcome back Cynthia from her 2 week cruise with her family. The weather is sunny and beautiful but a little hot. My Mom comes on Friday, so my apartment project is about to kick into high gear before she arrives!
Tonight, Mad Men and I think I have to watch Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami on E!
